Lakers re-sign Robert Sacre.

Sacre was a restricted free agent and was never going anywhere else. He'll make the league minimum and will attempt to eke out some minutes off the end of the Lakers' bench. He has no fantasy value.

Joe Johnson (wrist) has been cleared to play vs. Boston on Friday.

Rodney Hood (ankle) returned to action on Wednesday and Alec Burks has been playing well lately, so Johnson's minutes are likely to come at the expense of Jonas Jerebko. Johnson hasn't played since Oct. 30, of course, so we're not expecting him to log heavy playing time in his first game back.
Dec 14 - 2:15 PM

Aaron Gordon (concussion) returned to practice on Thursday.

This is a big step in Gordon's return from the concussion he suffered on Dec. 8, and it suggests he could return vs. the Blazers on Friday. He said that he felt good and had "no symptoms" on Monday, so the odds are good that he'll be cleared to play, but owners should double-check his status after Friday's shootaround.
Dec 14 - 2:12 PM

Robert Covington (lower back contusion) will play vs. the Thunder on Friday.

Richaun Holmes started in place of Covington on Tuesday, as the Sixers went big, but he'll return to a backup role vs. OKC. There's no suggestion of restrictions for Covington going forward, so make sure he's back in your active lineups.
Dec 14 - 2:07 PM

Draymond Green (shoulder) will not play on Thursday vs. the Mavericks.

Green wasn't spotted at the morning shootaround and was originally considered doubtful. The Warriors will have the next three days off before Monday's game vs. the Lakers, so hopefully the soreness in his shoulder subsides. Jordan Bell is a candidate for another start and is a strong streaming option vs. the Mavs. David West and Kevon Looney could be more involved as well.
Dec 14 - 1:51 PM

Jonathan Isaac (ankle) returned to practice on Thursday.

He's been out since Nov. 11, but the promising rookie should be back any day now. His status for Friday's game vs. the Blazers is still up in the air, but he does have a lot of stash appeal with the Magic banged up. He also has considerable upside, as he averaged 1.3 blocks in just 19.9 minutes per game.
Dec 14 - 1:44 PM

Lauri Markkanen (back) is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Bucks.

Coach Fred Hoiberg did say that the rookie is feeling better, so hopefully he's ready to return after a two-game absence. He's not going to take contact at Thursday's practice, so we'll have to see how he feels after the morning shootaround. With Nikola Mirotic playing really well, Markkanen's minutes could be in danger.
Dec 14 - 1:15 PM

Danilo Gallinari (left glute contusion) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Wizards.

He's getting ruled out a full day before tip-off, but this isn't a surprise considering coach Doc Rivers was expecting him to miss additional time. Jamil Wilson could make another start in Gallinari's absence, but he's a poor fantasy option. Sam Dekker had 12 points, four rebounds, one assist and two triples in 26 minutes on Wednesday, so he's on the radar as a low-end streaming option.
Dec 14 - 1:05 PM

Allen Crabbe (left knee soreness) is questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Knicks.

The Nets are one of the most cautious teams in the NBA, so there's a good chance we won't see Crabbe tonight. Brooklyn also plays on Friday, so this puts Joe Harris on the radar as a quality streaming option for owners in need of triples. If Crabbe sits, this would also give the Nets a chance to take their first look at Nik Stauskas.
Dec 14 - 11:51 AM

Dwight Howard piled up 26 points, 18 rebounds and three blocks in a losing effort vs. his former team on Wednesday, as the Hornets fell to the red-hot Rockets in Houston.

The loss dropped Charlotte to 2-11 on the road this season, and their 10-17 record leaves them 13th in the East, behind teams like Orlando, Brooklyn, Miami and New York. The good news is that six of their next seven games come at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte. As for Dwight, he's simply rolling at age 32, and he even made 8-of-11 free throws tonight (13-of-18 in his past two games combined).
Dec 14 - 1:29 AM

Chris Paul racked up a season-high 31 points on Wednesday, making 10-of-18 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs with 11 assists, seven rebounds, five 3-pointers and two steals in 35 minutes.

The Rockets have yet to lose with CP3 in the lineup, going a pristine 12-0 including 11 straight victories. They pulled away tonight with a 25-0 run in the first half, and cruised to an easy win despite a human performance from MVP candidate James Harden, who had 21 points on 8-of-22 shooting, eight assists, four rebounds, three 3-pointers, one steal and one block. Friday night's showdown between the Spurs and Rockets should be required viewing for NBA fans.
Dec 14 - 1:27 AM

DeMar DeRozan matched his season-high 37 points during a 115-109 win over the Suns on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, four assists and one turnover in 37 minutes.

The Raptors are playing some good ball these days with seven wins in their last eight, and it's all about their offense. In their last eight games, their starters have played the second most minutes together among all NBA combos (Wolves starters) and their 123.2 offensive rating in those 133 minutes ranks first in the NBA among the 26 combos with at least 48 minutes. As for DeRozan, he's been awesome in the pick-and-roll this year and he's on pace for his best field goal percentage since 2009-10.
